The Gospel is news. We do not live the Gospel. We cannot live the Gospel. We can’t live out the news. The idea from St. Francis of Assissi that we should “preach the Gospel at all time and if necessary use words” is foolishness. It is like saying give the news at all times and if necessary use words. We can live in light of the Gospel or because of the Gospel.
